Harper’s Fabricated Anti-Dion Ad

I saw the new Conservative’s “Dion is not worth the risk” ad last night. The one with the slot machine.  In keeping with the lying and distortion based Harper’s campaign, it sounds like they spliced together Dions word to make it appeared like he was saying he would raise taxes. For the uninitiated they might take that as a fact and admission by Dion. Dion and Liberal should protest loudly against this fabrication. Keeping quiet might lead people to think he actually said that. Just because we know it is obviously fabricated, people who does not follow politics might not realize this and underestimate the lies Harper is capable of. The ad mention things like gasoline prices would go up. The truth? Gasoline prices won’t go up rightaway unlike the BC carbon tax plan. There won’t be additional tax to gasoline until 2012, when the next government term is about to expire. This would give time for phasing in of alternative energy sources. Contrary to public perception, technology for electric car that could run fast is already a reality. It just needs a government willing to put on the infrastructure such as charging station. Talk of the need to wait for hydrogen fuel, which is still at least decades away, does nothing but aid those who profit from oil. Bush family is among the many benefactor with serious conflict of interest.

So people, wake up and stop getting fooled by ads that are saturating the airspace with distorted and fabricated stuff produced by the cash rich Conservative coffer. Stop relying on a tame media contented with keeping the status quo. We can either choose change or more of Katrina, Ike and increased flooding of low lying areas. Choose change or be contented with paying for high gas prices. Harper’s elector pleasing comment about oil gouging is all talk but no action plan. Among all the parties, Harper’s party is the only one that would allow those he called “oil price gouger” to run their business as usual. As long as Harper is in power, these oil profiteers don’t have to fear about a government supporting and giving incentives for adoption of alternative energy sources. With government incentives and increased use, this already existing technology would get a boost and prices would quickly drop. With a government unafraid to lead and offend the oil companies, car makers and manufacturers would be enticed to switch to alternative energy.

  1. um, I don’t get it.

    Dion says ‘we will raise the tax’ every day. As in ‘we will raise the tax on the things we don’t want’.

  2. Here’s a quote from the Green Shift plan just to clarify things from those who like to distort things.

    ——————–
    We will cut taxes on those things we want more of such as income, investment and innovation. And we will shift taxes to what we all want less of: pollution, greenhouse gas emissions and waste. We need to make polluters pay and put every single penny back into the hands of Canadians.

    The Green Shift Plan will be good for the environment and good for the economy. Good for the planet and good for your wallet. We need to make real progress in the fight against climate crisis, and at the same time make our economy more competitive. While energy prices continue to rise, we need to encourage energy efficiency.

    Some have said that nobody would have the courage or the political will to do what we believe is right. We need to do it. We will do it.

    ————-

    Personally, Dion is a braver leader for taking on something traditional politicians won’t tackle. Even though he is not a charismatic leader, he is a visionary. The Green shift plan involves gradual increase in taxes on carbon based sources. Not rapid rise. The aim is gradual phasing in to alternative energy. The technology is there, we just need a government motivated to make it happen. But if all you do is listen to Harper’s ad, then you would be inclined to believe that the sky will fall if we tackle the environmental problem. Remember industrial revolution and substitute Green industrial revolution. Now tell me that won’t be good for the economy.

  3. Here’s more from Dion’s mouth, not from Stephen “I can’t stop distorting facts” Harper.

  4. Harper has his head so far up George Bush’s back passage that George could get a gig as the two-headed freak at a traveling sideshow.
